COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
On a quest to make delicious beers, our brewers have continually sought creative new ways to accentuate the delightfully aromatic and flavorful qualities of hops. Hopheads rejoice!

Mash Hopping, First Wort Hopping, Kettle Hopping, and Dry Hopping create an award winning beer that embodies San Diego’s reputation for making world class IPAs. Our bottle Robust Series gives all beer lovers an opportunity to try our most rare beers, previously available only on draft at select tap houses. Enjoy! Get the Point!

porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - APR 13, 2009
(22 oz. bottle via trade with WeeHeavySD, thanks Jon!) Sweet, big and hoppy...Pours lightly hazy reddish amber with a finger or so of lightly amberish off-white head that recedes to a thin lasting layer. Pungent aroma of sweaty pine and grapefruit with some soft sticky caramel and vanilla underneath. Mouthfeel is soft, smooth and sticky. Big, weepy rings of lacing. Flavor of big hops - pine, grapefruit and a hint of sweat. Big tongue-coating bitterness overlays some softer, sticky sweet caramel and vanilla. The hops are a bit abrasive and maybe just a bit over the top in this case. ABV well-hidden.

That1Guy (2055) - Greeley, Colorado, USA - APR 12, 2009
Thanks to Smokepot23 for this bomber. Crushed with Jakebra. Excellent DIPA. Piny, citrusy hops on the nose. Full mouthfeel. One of the chewiest DIPAs I’ve had. Lots of hops, maybe a slight dishsoap in the bitterness, but nothing enough to take away from the excellence of this brew.

Bov (10454) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - APR 12, 2009
courtesy of fiulijn - very cloudy dark orange colour, little white foam; aroma of cream and apricot, notes of dust, musty; full-bodied, sticky and oily, slightly soapy; very bitter and quite dry, long fruity finish - a quite confusing hop bomb

A very nice IIPA. Copper/amber pour with a sticky off-white head. nice lacing. Good aroma of fresh hops, flowers, and caramel. Well balanced IPA with lots of resiny hops and bread/caramel malt to back it up. Pine, grapefruit, citrus, grain.

Dickinsonbeer (5075) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 9, 2009
Bomber. Pours a mostly clear copper wth a nice big rocky lasting white head and nice lace. Aroma is tons of PNW hops- columbus minty citrus hints of cold hoppy smokiness, cluster- slight cattyness- pine and green, and lots of nice citrus all around. Malt profile is plain but stands up to the hops and keeps it unbalanced which is good- tons of resinous hops all around- pine, dank weed, slight mint, and lots of citrus- hints of more cat pee as it warms- more pine sap and slight soapiness. Good harsh resinous bitterness in the end. Nice!

Coltrane (108) - South Carolina, USA - APR 8, 2009
Amazing double. Slightly thicker than Sculpin, but with the same grapefruit freshness. A bit pricey at 9 a bomber, but certainly worth a taste. Ridiculous hops, but with a nice balance.

thornecb (4822) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - APR 7, 2009
Pours deep clear amber into a snifter. Off-white head pancakes and recedes to spot surface leaving slight spiders. Strong pine resin and grapefruit aromas. Sweet full honey upfront turning crisp then syrupy. Lasting resin finish. A sipper.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - APR 5, 2009
Bottle shared with MaltOMeal. Thanks, Bill! Pours a thick and vivacious cheddar orange with a healthy head of foam. Aroma is spicy malt grapefruit, with just a smidgen of pine and orange. Flavor is a mouth-puckering assault of grapefruit, spicy grain, and pine. Tingly and pleasant on the tongue. One of the truly great IPAs.

Poured amber/orange in color with a large, creamy, dense, rocky, off-white head that lasted throughout. Clear. Lightly sparkling. Very good to excellent lacing. Lightly sweet, medium to heavily bitter. Tastes of hops, pine, orange, slight caramel, grapefruit, tangerine, hop oil, and a hint of honey. Medium body. Oily, slightly sticky, slightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Slightly sweet, medium bitter, hop oil and citrus-fruit finish is lightly dry. 9.6%ABV is very well hidden.
